DJ Cuppy, a disk jockey and daughter of billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, has demanded an apology from Davido’s Logistics Manager, Afeare Isreal, over a statement he made regarding her strained relationship with popular rapper, Zlatan Ibile.
KanyiDaily recalls that DJ Cuppy had earlier threatened to sue Isreal after he accused her of owing Zlatan for his collaboration in their 2019 hit song, “Gelato”.
DJ Cuppy has finally made good her threat as her lawyers, Babajide Koku & Co., have written to Israel, demanding his public apology over alleged libellous statements against their client.
In a letter dated February 10, Cuppy’s lawyers stated that there was no contractual breach in her deal with Zlatan.
“It is crucial to state that there are legal contracts that govern the relationship between our Client and Mr Zlatan Ibile; said contracts which very fairly and adequately cover the financial compensation of both artists.
“Neither our Client nor Mr Zlatan Ibile have breached their contractual obligations in any way. The allegations in the statements made by you are completely untrue and constitute a grave libel upon our Client,” the letter partly reads.
The lawyers also demanded that within seven days, Israel should writes a public letter of apology withdrawing his claims, and also a letter of undertaking to cease and desist from publishing libellous allegations against DJ Cuppy.
“We, therefore, write to demand that you immediately cease and desist from all libellous and defamatory statements of our client, her business and her brand,” it read in part.
“We demand that within seven days of receipt of this letter; (i) You write a letter to be shared with the public containing a suitable withdrawal and apology in terms to be approved by us on our Clients behalf.
“(ii) You provide us with your full assurance and an undertaking in writing that you will cease and desist from repeating the publication of those or similar allegation concerning our client.”
